Author Correction: The SEIRS model for infectious disease dynamics

The Original Article was published on 04 June 2020

Correction to: Nature Methods, published online 4 June 2020.

In the version of this article initially published, the sum σ + μ + α appeared in denominators in the expressions for R0 and infectious period in the sentence immediately after the displayed equations. The correct sum in both cases is γ + μ + α. The error has been corrected in the PDF and HTML versions of the article.
